Sharon Osbourne makes TV comeback with Piers Morgan after controversial US show exit

Sharon Osbourne is set to make her television comeback after her controversial departure as a panelist from CBS show The Talk.

Last year, the former X Factor judge backed her friend Piers Morgan following his comments about Meghan Markle.

Sharon was called out by her co-host Sheryl Underwood, who accused her of giving "validation" to "racist" views. The on-air argument ended with Sharon departing the show.

And the 69 year old has now announced that she will be working alongside Piers as she has now joined TalkTV to front her own primetime show called, The Talk.

Sharon's new current affairs panel show is set to air for an hour every weeknight.

She will host five opinionated public figures as they discuss the day's big issues.

Topics of discussion will range anywhere from politics and health to crime and entertainment.

Speaking on Thursday about her new television gig, Sharon revealed she was ready for "exciting and lively" conversations on the new series.

"I'm excited to be working with News UK, the panel and my good friend Piers," she said in a statement.

Sharon added: "Watch this space for some exciting and lively debates from us all."

The daily one hour show will launch in the UK on TalkTV later this spring.

Sharon's new show comes after TV network CBS were forced to take the American show The Talk off-air last year as they investigated Sharon and co-host Sheryl's disagreement.

In a statement, CBS said the televised incident on March 10 "was upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home".

They also added that Sharon's behaviour during the episode "did not align with our values for a respectful workplace".

This came days after Piers quit Good Morning Britain after receiving extensive backlash for his views against Meghan following her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He later decided to end his time on the show, with ITV confirming his departure in a statement.

It read: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

More than 41,000 viewers complained to Ofcom following his remarks about the Duchess of Sussex.
